There is evidence of superstition among ancient civilizations. But this is not something of the past. Superstition is part of our modern world, too.
Some very old beliefs are present among us today: a broken mirror, for example, means seven years of bad luck. A black cat brings you bad luck when it crosses your way. Some people never walk under ladder because it also means bad luck.
There is also a place for good luck in superstition. Some charms and beliefs are popular because they bring good luck. There is a curious belief in Brazil: three kisses on the face of a single girl bring marriage.
